Nlyte Software, one of the major US based DCIM market giant, has recently announced to have received the much-coveted approval of the Department of Homeland Security for its DCIM suite. Reportedly, the latest approval makes it the first DCIM solution across the U.S. to adhere to all the stipulations prescribed in the Phase 1 of Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program of the federal government. For the record, the U.S. federal government had rolled out a Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Program a few years back to ensure security and integrity of software and hardware assets of the nation.

Apparently, industry experts claim that such approvals would provide advanced tools and capabilities to various governmental agencies to continuously monitor the safety of critical data centers across various nations. Furthermore, it is quite needless to mention that such encouraging developments would eventually impel the growth potential of the overall DCIM industry in the ensuing years.

Elaborating further, it would be prudent to mention a similar instance of governmental initiative that has provided a substantial boost to the firms operating in Australia’s DCIM industry space. The Northern Territory government of Australia has recently declared its Budget for 2018-19 in which it has allocated a total sum of around AU$18.38 million to support initiatives under the Department of Corporate and Information Services.

As part of this scheme, the government plans to upscale the number of physical servers from 444 to 460 and intends to increase the number of its fully managed servers from 1600 to 1700 in the next financial year. With such enormous upgradation program in the pipeline, it is quite obvious that prominent firms partaking in DCIM industry of Australia sense an excellent opportunity to deploy their expertise in securing the nation’s data center network.

One of the major challenges being faced by DCIM market players has been the responsibility of bridging the complex web of interconnections among a network of data centers. With the advent of enhanced automated tools, highly optimized management workflow procedures, and deployment of real-time monitoring systems, the aforementioned challenges are being gradually surmounted by DCIM industry stakeholders. This trend of improved functionality coupled with powerful IT-based applications would invariably have a favorable influence on the growth prospects of DCIM market share in the times to come.
